Wroughton Floral Art Society, affiliated to South West area of NAFAS, is a flourishing group of flower lovers who meet on the second Tuesday of every month, at the ELLENDUNE CENTRE WROUGHTON SN4 9LW.
Members range from complete beginners to those who have years of experience and expertise, but ALL are welcome whatever your level of flower arranging skill. We are a friendly bunch of ladies (and a couple of gents!!) who love flowers, floral art, and socialising.
We have a varied programme including demonstrations, when expert flower arrangers from around the country visit to show their floral art and to entertain us for up to 2 hours; talks on floral or garden related topics and three times a year we have a practical evening when a one of our more experienced members passes on their skills to us, and after a short lesson many members will get hands on, with their completed arrangements being judged. These sessions are for ALL and are judged as either NOVICES, INTERMEDIATE OR ADVANCED.
The December meeting is held in the main Ellendune Hall for which tickets are sold to the public and to members. The December event is always christmas themed and nearly always a sell out.
We also have a junior section, for those aged 7 to 17 years old, that meets four times a year for hands on floral art.
Lee Berrill will be tutoring a Workshop for us on Saturday, 17th May WEAVING CONTAINERS FROM FOLIAGE. Open to Members and Non-Members. The Workshop will be held at Highworth Community Centre 10-4. Further details from Jean Drumm 01793 762392 or Alison Zabell 01672 516899.
